Spring Blush Love: MAC Fleet Fast

It's no secret that I LOVE blush. In springtime, I gravitate towards natural looking pinks and corals. So this month I'm going to be featuring four of my spring blush picks! I decided to start with MAC's Fleet Fast as it's easily in my top 5 of all time. 

Fleet Fast is a beautiful coral pink. It's a satin formula, but I don't have experience with any other MAC blushes yet so I couldn't tell you how this compares to other satins in the MAC range. It's not a buttery or soft blush by any means. It has a pretty stiff texture so it does take a little more working with than other blushes. It's not so hard that it's annoying but it's worth noting. It's also not powdery or chalky like a lot of drier blushes are.

I really love the color and I'm sure there are other brands out there that make something similar but for my collection, this is unique. I have corals and I have pinks but Fleet Fast is a great mixture of the two. Strangely, I also have very few blushes that I would classify as a true satin and this is definitely one of them. 

I love this color enough that I would wear it year round but it's definitely a spring/summer color. I've been using my trusty Sigma F40 with this and it works just fine. This was LE with Hey Sailor last summer but you might still be able to find it on Ebay or in a CCO. I promise, this is the only hard to find blush I show you in this series! 
Do share with me your blush picks for spring! I'm always on the lookout for more blushes!


  1. That is a very lovely color! And I think the less buttery blushes can actually be better because I tend to have a heavy hand with blush, and it prevents me from looking too done up! I'll have to visit my CCO soon to find products from this collection, I'm kicking myself for not getting any!

    1. That's very true! I have really fair skin so it's easy for me to cross the line with blush but I've never had that problem with this color.
